Snow Park Information
You must wear helmuts when riding in the Parks.
The Chapel Snowpark a.k.a. The Baby Park, Avoriaz
. Situated at the entrance of the resort, the aim of this snowpark, with its specially adapted terrain, is to satisfy the freestyle desires of both snowboarders and skiers, either beginners or experts. Composed of different modules, such as rails, boxes and jumps ranging from beginner green, to blue and occasionally expert reds, it is a place most people come to practice before hitting the ‘Big Park’.
The Arare Snowpark a.k.a. The Big Park, Avoriaz
. Situated on the Arare mountain between the ‘Bleu de lacs’ piste and the Arare piste, The Arare is known to be the first snowpark to be built in France and rumour has it, it is the first in Europe. The Arare has everything such as rails, boxes, jumps and barrels, and it has the boardercross (which is fun for all levels of snowboarder). This area is more suited for the skilled skier and boarder, and although it has the occasional blue jump, this park has red and black poles everywhere and you can often watch many pro snowboarders trying out crazy tricks each year from the bottom of the park.
The ‘Superpipe’, Avoriaz
. This old half pipe has been transformed into a 120m long, 6 metre high Super-Pipe, meaning that more and more official competitions are now held here on a regular basis. Will you try your turn at the super pipe?
The Brocheaux Boarder slope, Brocheaux.
The start is located under the 6 man Express de Lindarets chair from the Lindarets bowl, ready for up to 4 people to race together down an 800metre course arriving down at the foot of the Cascade des Brocheaux.
The Stash, Lindaret
. With a vertical rise of over 1,500 feet and almost a mile in length. Designed with intermediate to advanced riders in mind, The Stash is loaded with hidden features waiting to be discovered including pillow lines, road gaps, wall rides, log jibs, cliff drops, tree rides and a one-of-a-kind tree house obstacle. An all-natural environment, The Stash uses no metal or plastics to create obstacles, only wood, trees, dirt and rocks.
Most years there are also parks built in Les Gets, Mont Chery and Les Crosets in Switzerland.
